NLEX Corporation has invested billions to improve its services

Part of the investment is the improvement of the toll road company’s infrastructure, toll collection system, and account management system. With these projects, motorists can complete their transactions faster at toll gates, as well as see their individual and corporate accounts easier.

To do that, equipment such as toll fare indicators, lane status indicators, traffic control gates, automatic vehicle classification devices, and loop detectors will be upgraded. The project covers toll plazas in Balintawak, Karuhatan, Paso de Blas, Meycauayan, Marilao, Bocaue, Balagtas, Tabang, Sta. Rita, Pulilan, San Simon, San Fernando, Mexico, and Angeles.

“We keep on investing in innovative solutions to make our processes more efficient and most importantly, make the experience of our motorists more pleasant and comfortable as possible,” said NLEX Corporation President and General Manager J. Luigi L. Bautista.

By doing so, motorists can get to their destinations faster and more conveniently. They can top up through the following options: MPT DriveHub app, online reloading partners, and reloading stations.

The investment follows the upgrade works NLEX Corporation rolled out last year. These include the installation of more RFID early detection features and automatic license plate recognition (ALPR). With the latter, the company can share data with the Land Transportation Office (LTO) for the implementation of the contactless apprehension policy.
